Ultra Race Recap: Dr. Redtights Takes on SB100

By |July 15th, 2016|

The SB100 was a rough introduction to the world of ultra running. My facetious but true statement when people would ask me if I had run a 100 before was, "I have never run a race without obstacles more than 13.1 miles." Of course, I decided to change that by running one of the hardest 100 milers in Southern California. Here's how it went (spoiler, the kitty was a lie):

Run a Relay – Linking People & Places Forever

By |May 31st, 2016|

Running became a passion of mine "later" in life, I didn't run my first mile until I was in my early 30's, my first 5k in 2002 or so. Over the years I've fallen in love with running dozens of different times in various forms; trails, roads, obstacle course races, ultras, stage races, cross-country relays, etc. I've even fallen prey to the running demons that often plague us all; overuse, injury, self-doubt, DNF's, failures in all shapes and sizes. I've cared way too much about certain runs that didn't matter and dismissed some very valuable ones as unimportant; A races that I'd spent months training for became B or C races on a whim, while I turned simple training sessions into do-or-die battles with running partners.

Adam Kimble Run Across USA: Days 44 – 58

By |April 13th, 2016|

It’s crazy that these friends all met racing in the Gobi Desert in China and so many have traveled far distances from across the US to take Adam’s side for long miles together. His Gobi buds have become official trail angels. Adam completed 43 miles today with Mark's support totaling 2,323.2 with only 144 to go! The Atlantic is within reach, but we are realizing it won’t be an easy-breezing ending.

Adam Kimble Run Across USA: Day 33 – 43

By |March 30th, 2016|

Adam still progressed by getting in 29 miles from 5 am to 8:30 pm. He was experiencing a lot of pain in his right shin and right hip. He’s amazing to persevere through all of the pain. Progress is progress! One of the best parts of the day was having two puppies follow Adam for 3 miles and keep him company. The crew would have loved to keep the pups as our trans-con mascots, but we reunited the puppies with their family. Onto Day 44 in Louisiana!

Adam Kimble’s Run Across USA: Days 29-32

By |March 18th, 2016|

There’s a new vision to this mission and you could tell today. Adam was in high spirits as a man with a new plan and new goals. Team morale is high, too. We continually try to be creative at pit stops. Today, we turned to the game two truths and a lie to stump each other. We’ve gotten to know each other pretty well being together 24/7. Adam dominated 50 miles for the third day in a row and has 1,212 to go! Starting to visualize the Atlantic Ocean from Texas! Onto Day 33!

Adam Kimble’s Run Across USA: Day 17

By |March 3rd, 2016|

Today was the same routine: Wake up at 3 am. Start walking at 4 am. Run/Walk 5 miles. Pit Stop. Run/Walk 5 miles. Pit stop. Over and over until the finish line for the day. Today’s finish line was an exciting one! Adam hit the New Mexico border! Ultra pal ran with Adam the last 30 miles of the day and finished at the New Mexico border with Adam. To shake things up a bit at the pit stops, Adam’s wife Karen started playing Pass the Popcorn to give Adam fun trivia since he’s a big movie guy.

Adam Kimble’s Run Across USA: Days 14-16

By |March 2nd, 2016|

Exciting moment for Adam! He started running again today! Today started a new routine of intervals of running and walking. His initial plan was to do this all along, but since he’s been in a lot of pain he hasn’t run since the afternoon of Day 5. So running is huge deal! Even though he’s running, he’s still in pain in his left shin, left IT band and left Achilles. Adam is waiting for the day he can enjoy running again and not be in pain.

Adam Kimble’s Run Across USA: Day 13

By |February 29th, 2016|

This morning a man, Ken, just happened to walk by a pit stop and said, “Hey! Are you walking across the country? I just heard about you on the radio!” Then continued to share hydration techniques. Then, this afternoon high schoolers Chris and Ricco, joined Adam walking and asked Adam to sign their track shoes for good luck in this upcoming season. So cool!
